IndiGoReach and Bandhan Konnagar Celebrated Success of First Phase of Targeting the Hard Core Poor Program



Continuing its commitment towards women empowerment and skill-building, IndiGoReach, the CSR arm of IndiGo and Bandhan-Konnagar celebrated the success of the first phase of ‘Targeting the Hard-Core Poor’ (THP) Program. Started in 2015 in association with Bandhan Konnagar in West Bengal, the program targeted women-headed families with limited or no means to livelihood. The event celebrated the success of 600 beneficiary women and their families who were able to enhance their income and livelihood through sustained intervention of the THP programme over twenty-four months by way of business skill development training and on-site assistance.

THP, an internally-acclaimed livelihood-generating model of Bandhan Konnagar, has been validated by leading economists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

In its second phase, the program aims to help 4000 more women in Patna, Udaipur, Kolkata, Raipur and Bhubaneswar.
